About Us

Solid reputation. Lasting results.

For more than three decades, New Life Addiction Treatment Pasadena Maryland has been changing lives. A dual-diagnosis center, we provide outpatient treatment tailored to strengthen those struggling with substance abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, and mental health issues. Our proven reputation comes from treating more than just those issues, though; we treat the entire person. With an emphasis on total abstinence from alcohol and drugs, we help clients explore their behaviors, identify challenges, and develop a healthy, clean, and sober lifestyle … maintaining recovery through a coordination of care.

Our Foundation

Founded in 1984 by Thomas Porter, New Life’s commitment to client care has never wavered. From the start, Tom’s compassion for the alcoholic and addict was quickly recognized by the treatment team at Hidden Brook in Bel Air, Maryland, where he began his professional career. With that, Tom was encouraged to launch an outpatient aftercare program in Dundalk, and, soon after, he and his team also opened programs in Anne Arundel, Wicomico, and Carroll counties. The philosophies put into practice by Tom and his dedicated team have stood the test of time. Today, New Life proudly offers a safe and confidential atmosphere out of a state-of-the-art facility in Pasadena, Maryland, run by Tom’s daughter, Director and CEO Beverly Ervin.

In the beginning it was hard for me to understand and accept that I could actually benefit from New Life’s program, but it turns out that because of the caring staff and other patients trying to get clean there, it was not only possible but easier than I thought it would be.
